Now that summer is ending and we will be into fall and winter soon we all need to take care of ourselves and our families to stay healthy.  In this country, flu season happens in the fall and winter. Flu viruses circulate year-round, most of the time flu activity peaks between late November and the end of January. I had a yearly check-up last week and my doctor shared that and some other helpful things.

Probably a good time to make sure you are stocked up on all your vitamins.  I take a multi-vitamin year-round and also supplements for my immune system, D3, and extra Vitamin C and Co-Q10 to keep my heart healthy.  This is a good time of year to check with your doctor to make sure you're getting everything you need.

You have to do what's right for you and many folks' circumstances vary, but is important to have all the facts.  Stay Safe.
